A brief aside regarding Japanese toilets.

When I wrote the last few posts, I had originally intended to include a lot more commentary about the toilets in Japan.  Homer Simpson put it best:  They’re years ahead of us!

Rather than discuss it more here, I’ll nudge you to read Vanessa’s excellent post over at Leather And Abel about Japanese toilets.

While the toilets I encountered didn’t have multi-colored fountains or musical chimes, I did see toilets with warmed seats (delightful!) and toilets with a privacy mode that creates white noise to make it harder for the people around you to guess what you’re actually doing in the stall.

Have you ever used a high tech Japanese toilet?  Do you think the privacy button is really fooling anyone?
